Photos by Ken Williams, no reproduction without permission.

These photos date from the 1970s. They show theĀ Pebble Mill at OneĀ production office.

Thanks to Keith Brook (aka Scouse) for sharing the photos.

Photo 1 has Heather Turner, hands on hips, who was in charge of fashion items, Sue Ashcroft in the middle and Roger Laughton on the right. Roger was deputy editor who went on to be Managing Director of Meridian.
Photo 2 has Yvonne Ackrill on the right and I don’t know who on the left.
Photo 3 has the same lady again and Terry Dobson, the infamous editor, trying to be dominating.Photo 4 is Sue Ashcroft again in a typical, shy and quiet pose!

The following comment was posted on the Pebble Mill Facebook group:

Keith Brook: ‘The camera (in the 2nd photo) is an EMI 201 that was used as a makeshift prompter. Slung underneath the studio cameras were small TV monitors showing the script, which meant the presenters were always looking down slightly.’
